Lions Mane

Enter the world of culinary delight with Hericium Erinaceus, commonly known as Lion's Mane—a delectable, shaggy-looking mushroom native to North America, Europe, and China. Flourishing in the vicinity of maple and beech trees, this fascinating fungus thrives as a saprophytic feeder on decaying trees. However, it unveils its versatile nature by also exhibiting endophytic tendencies, living as a parasitic gem on live trees.

Lion's Mane boasts a distinctive seafood-like taste, reminiscent of crab or lobster—making it a personal favorite for crafting mouthwatering "lobster" rolls. Its flavor profile is a harmonious blend of sweetness, richness, and a subtle savory undertone. What sets it apart is its meaty yet delicately stringy texture, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a delightful substitute for crab. Indulge your palate in the unique and flavorful experience that Lion's Mane brings to the table.
